Lampard himself believes both himself and his side are heading in the right direction.
He told BBC Radio Five Live: "I'm very pleased we got the three points, albeit not at our best. We had to address the manner we lost the Arsenal game."
Lampard, who scored 15 goals for the club last season, added: "Being out of the team spurred me on. "The minute you're taken out of the team people talk. I've trained hard and I've won my place back in the team."
